75th Post- I Love Blogs

I really enjoy blogging and reading other people's blogs. I am glad that somebody out there started the ever-growing trend of mommy blogging. In celebration of my 75th post I have compiled a list of some of the reasons that I LOVE blogging (and blogs).

1. It forces me to be a little creative sometimes. I have never been a very creative person and I enjoy that I can create without too many critics.

2. I have found that I sort of enjoy writing. Although I don't think I am a great writer, I like the challenge of coming up with just the right way to tell my story.

3. I have found a way to keep a journal and not fail at it by "forgetting" to write for months in a row.

4. I love that I can read the blogs of family and friends and feel like I am connected to them in some way even if I don't talk to them much (or ever!), and my kids can remember their cousins by seeing pictures on those blogs.
5. I like to talk about my kids and show off their adorable faces. Can you tell?

6. I enjoy feeling connected in some way to an adult world while I am at home with two young children all day.

7. There are a lot of blogs out there that teach great things. I have subscribed to a few recipe blogs, and although I haven't tried any of the recipes yet, I really like looking.

8. I get to be inspired and moved by blogs that I find like this family's.

9. I get to laugh when I read the very clever writing of people like her and her. They also make me want to be a better writer (and live a more exciting and humor-filled life).

10. I have something that I enjoy doing and it doesn't cost any money (kind of).

11. I am becoming a faster typist all the time even if I still don't use the right fingers on the right keys.

12. I get comments from people that I didn't think cared to read my blog. It makes me happy! (Keep them coming.)

13. Most importantly, I have learned things about myself and others that I might not have learned without blogging. I hope that I will continue to learn for a very long time.

I think you are a great writer, and I never knew that before the blogworld. I love blogging too. I think it makes me face things with a better attitude if I know I will be reporting to others. And thanks for the nice comment--I'm flattered.

It is SO fun to read blogs of family and friends. I love keeping up on their lives. It is definitely and fun way to vent -- and find out that others have the same daily struggles to deal with.
